Iran Claims Missile Tests Not A Threat To Neighbors

An Iranian air force commander is maintaining that today's tests of three short range missiles, and tonight's scheduled testing of medium range rockets and tomorrow's scheduled test of long range missiles, are not a threat to that nation's neighbors.

The Iranian Student News Agency quotes Revolutionary Guard Air Force Brigadier General Hossein Salami as saying they are being fired only to show other nations that might show "malevolence" toward Iran that they are prepared to respond "quickly through tough and strong reaction."

Iran's long range missiles have the capability of reaching Israel.
